My romantic YA reinterpretation of Phantom of the Opera, featuring Erika, haunted by her own loneliness, as she pursues her obsessive crush on Christian, the cutest boy in her theater class. My first published work of fiction!
Planned for release in Fall 2024 from Scholastic/Graphix.
This is my take on the “ugly duckling” romance — like Kare Kano, Kimi ni Todoke, True Beauty, and Princess Jellyfish — told through the lens of a queer person obsessed with cute boys and dressed in the Phantom’s clothes.
Here I’ve collected some preview art. I hope you look forward to it!
My entire heart is in this story. It has been a gift to draw Christian & Erika every day.
